Governor signs drug bills at Sheriff ’s Office By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Gov. Bob McDonnell took care of some official business on Monday during a visit to the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office. With Col. David R. Hines, sheriff, on hand, the governor signed nine pieces of legislation related to crimes involving drugs in Virginia. The Virginia General Assembly bills include:

❍ HB968/SB159 — Significantly increases penalties for repeat drug dealers. ❍ HB718 — Allows juveniles to be charged as adults for repeat drug dealing. ❍ HB508/SB273 — Criminalize possession and distribution of synthetic cannabinoids. ❍ HB1161/SB294 — Strengthen law enforcement procedures to track sale of

HYSC learns about Army life, how to support troops Sgt. Maj. Michael Stockhausen and Sgt. Johnathan Hoggatt of the U.S. Army recently met with the Hanover Youth Service Council (HYSC) as part of an ongoing effort to learn more about veterans and explore ways the Council can support our troops. Stockhausen is from Mechanicsville and Hoggatt is from Ashland. On Wednesday, July 11, the men shared their reasons for joining the military, discussed the special training they received as Army Rangers, and described their living conditions while serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. When asked what event

impacted him the most while in the service, Stockhausen said Army Ranger School as the defining point. He said students endure food restriction, sleep deprivation and additional psychological stresses while learning combat leadership skills. Just over 40 percent of the students who begin the elite program graduate. “It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. It was worse than getting shot at. After Ranger School, everything else seemed easy,” Stockhausen said. Hoggatt, also an Army Ranger, described the varying living situations in Afghanistan and Iraq that ranged from comsee HYSC, pg. 22

In the brutal heat of this summer, Hanover County Animal Control reminds all citizens that leaving your pet in your vehicle for even a few minutes on sunny days – even if the windows are not rolled up – can kill them. “A pet can die in only a few minutes if left in a car even with the windows rolled down,” Kevin Kilgore, chief of Hanover County Animal Control, said. “Bring them inside or leave them at home, but don’t leave them in a car. Even when it’s only 80 degrees outside and sunny, the inside of a car gets hot very quickly and your pet will become overheated.” On a warm, sunny day, the temperature in a parked car can reach a temperature of 120 degrees in minutes, even with the car window partially open. “A pet can quickly suffer brain damage or die from heatstroke when trapped in these high temperatures,” Kilgore said. Parking in the shade offers little protection, as the sun shifts during the day. If your pet is exposed to high temperatures: l Be alert for signs of heat stress — heavy panting, glazed eyes, a rapid pulse, unsteadiness, a staggering gait, vomiting or a deep red or purple tongue. l If your pet becomes overheated, you must lower its body temperature immediately. Move your pet into the shade and apply cool (not cold) water all over its body to gradually lower its temperature. Apply ice packs or cool towels to your pet’s head, neck and chest only. Let your pet drink small amounts of cool water or lick ice cubes. l Finally, take your pet directly to a veterinarian — it could save its life. If you see an animal in a

car exhibiting any signs of heat stress, call 911 immediately. Hanover County Animal Control and other law enforcement agencies also will be patrolling certain areas, including parking lots, looking for pets and other living things that may be in heat distress because of being left in vehicles. If your animal dies as a result of being left in a vehicle, you can be charged with a felony count of cruelty to animals, which if convicted could lead to jail time. Some other tips for taking care of your pet in hot weather, from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA): l Don’t force your pet to exercise after a meal in hot, humid weather. Exercise it in the early morning or evening, and keep walks to a minimum. l Never leave your dog standing on hot asphalt. Its body can heat up quickly and sensitive paw pads can burn. l Do not take an animal to the beach unless you can provide a shaded spot and plenty of fresh water. Rinse it off after

it has been in salt water. l It’s smart to provide plenty of shade and a well-constructed doghouse for animals staying outside. Bring your dog inside during the hottest part of the day, and make sure it has plenty of cool water. Keep cats indoors. l Be extra sensitive to old and overweight animals in hot weather. Snub-nosed dogs such

as bulldogs, pugs, Boston terriers, Lhasa apsos and shih tzus, as well as those with heart or lung diseases, should be kept in air-conditioned rooms as much as possible. For more tips on how to protect your pets from hot weather, to the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals web site at www.aspca. org and check for hot weather tips. Leaving pets in cars also exposes them to theft. If you must take your pet with you in your car, do so safely. Cats should ride in pet carriers and dogs should ride in travel crates or be on a leash. When a pet travels, it should wear two ID tags — one with a home address and one with a destination address.

We can’t take those who serve for granted Before the 2012 Hanover Tomato Festival was dedicated to Hanover County Fire/EMS, I had the opportunity to congratulate Chief Fred Crosby on the much-deserved designation. Little did I know that the next day I would witness first-hand the quality of services his department provides. While the tragic total loss of a house on Westhaven Drive in Mechanicsville due to a lightning strike on Sunday grabbed the headlines, that wasn’t the only location in our community to suffer damages due to Mother Nature. The sound was bomb-like — and too close for comfort. A new neighbor appeared at the door a short time later with the news that his home had been hit by lightning and the fire department was on the way. When crews with Station 7 (Henry) arrived, I walked around the house to check out the situation. Having been around emergency scenes many times in my career, I immediately introduced myself as I approached the crew. First impression was “Wow — these folks are great!” Disciplined, organized, concerned. Those are just a few of the words to describe them. After thoroughly checking the house that was hit by lightning, some of the firefighters headed to my home. They were skilled and comprehensive in their work. But, what really made such a difference was the sincerity of their efforts. We’re all guilty of it — we take these incredible people for granted. We know they’re there and we know they’ll answer the call. And when they do come to our rescue, we are so very fortunate. We can’t lose sight of that. I was glad I had that brief congratulatory moment with Chief Crosby at the Tomato Festival. And, on Monday, July 16, I was able to share the experience with Battalion Chief Willie Jones when he provided the information about the Westhaven Drive incident. So, to all the men and women who serve our county’s Fire/EMS, thank you. Your dedication and commitment are admirable and respected. And, you don’t have to be in a situation like I found myself in that stormy Sunday. You can thank them just because they do what they do — for us. Melody Kinser

I would like to thank Manny Tavares and Warren Pratt, the directors of the Mechanicsville United FC Sabers Soccer Club, for allowing me to help their club with the addition of a new storage shed at Pole Green Park for my Girl Scout Silver Award project. With the donation of a shed from Lowe’s, I was able to accomplish my goal of providing a place to store their soccer equipment. The generosity and support of all the volunteers from my MUFC friends was overwhelming! Their kindness is a true testament of the type of organization I am proud to call my family. Go Sabers!

to come down. Then those same companies are called back to clean up the mess that they caused in the first place; there goes more of our tax dollars. If someone would do the math, the amount of money spent over the years on preventive maintenance and the cleanup after the fact more than likely would have paid the cost to have the power lines placed underground throughout the county. I know that not all lines can be placed underground, but at least the areas that are hit most can be. I know that this would save money in the long haul and the residents of Hanover County would be thankful because of the cost due to loss of power, such as spoiled food, cost of generators and gas to run them, not counting the loss of wages. The money our county spends on all of the above could be better spent on our county roads and schools. Leon F. Sprinkle Mechanicsville

Make changes to what you have

Obama spends his time with rich gay community

This is in reference to the letter titled “Can our president write the law?” from Robert Mackay in the letters to the editor section. His solution seems to be to start over. That’s a little silly. Why not make changes to what you have to make it work better. My suggestion is to find some honest people who genuinely care and are very well informed on the issues and who can’t be bought. Wonder if this is really possible? Wouldn’t be an easy task at all. Some people are just control freaks, I guess. Larry Weinstein Mechanicsville

LaToya Brown makes some interesting points in her letter to The Local on July 3. I would like to offer this observation: Obama is MIA and not spending time in AfricanAmerican communities because, as a group, AfricanAmericans are not wealthy. He is “playing footsie” with the homosexual community because, as a group, homosexuals are incredibly wealthy. Obama has raised millions in Hollywood since he came out in support of homosexual marriage. Obama’s priority is re-election and in this close election raising money is very important.

Addressing concerns about power outage issues As a concerned taxpayer and Hanover County resident for more than 20 years, I wish to voice my concerns about the power outages that we have every year. Over the last 20 years I have watched our county spend millions of our tax dollars each year on tree trimming and brush removal around our power lines. The companies that are hired, most from out of state, remove limbs from one side of the trees that are close to the lines, which weakens and throws off the balance of that tree, and, when a storm hits, such as we just had, causes that tree

RMHC scholarships have students ‘lovin’ it’ By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local Ronald McDonald House is known internationally as a valuable resource for families who are experiencing overwhelming medical challenges, offering parents a place to live and relax during their children’s treatment. But that’s not the only way the agency gives back to the communities they serve. The Ronald McDonald House on Monument Avenue in Richmond recently held a reception for the 15 area students who are the recipients of this year’s Ronald McDonald House scholarships. The program is an annual partnership between the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Richmond, local McDonald’s owners and operators and McDonald’s corporate headquarters. Each student received $2,000 for his or her future studies.

Area owner-operators are a large reason the scholarship program has blossomed over the years. Whitney Welsh, who owns and operates McDonald’s in the Mechanicsville area, said the program is a great way to give back to the community she serves. “It’s a great opportunity for McDonald’s owner-operators to support their local consumers in the restaurant, and help them move forward with their careers,” she said. Lee-Davis High School graduate Chelsea Shipp of Mechanicsville was among the recipients honored. Jaden Norman, one of the students Welsh sponsored, also is an employee at her Bottoms Bridge store. Norman is headed to Virginia Tech in August, and said the scholarship is the culPhoto by Jim Ridolphi mination of a great relationship This year’s group of scholarship recipients pose with the owner-operators who helped make the scholarships possible.

Church of Redeemer Aug. 11 Swimathon to raise funds awards scholarships to send children to MDA camp One of the many ways that Court of Redeemer’s Angels #2456 supports and recognizes the youth of the parish at the Church of the Redeemer in Mechanicsville is by sponsoring an annual scholarship contest. All Church of Redeemer high school seniors, college or vocational training students are encouraged to apply. A minimum of three scholarships are awarded from a total prize of $1,500. This fund is provided by the profits of a Brunswick Stew

of Community Resources, said. “In previous years, citizens were encouraged to drop off donations at government locations or directly to the schools. By designating two dropoff points at easily accessible locations we are making it more convenient for citizens to contribute. Also, by further streamlining distribution we are ensuring that more students in need are receiving supplies.” Parents and students in need of school supplies are asked to contact their school counselor for assistance. The list of school supplies that are most needed can be read at http://www.co.hanover. va.us/commres/programs_ HPromise.htm For more information about Ready, Set, School, contact Robertson at larobertson@ hanovercounty.gov or 804-3654180.

and Bake Sale, which is held in February. The continued support of the parish and the dedication on the court to this fundraiser allows CDA to remain committed to providing yearly scholarships to help in the extended education of Redeemer’s youth. Each application is reviewed by a committee to determine the highest scores based on academic achievement, involvement in extracurricular activities, generosity of time to community service and an essay question.

Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com ERA Woody Hogg and Associates, Ryan Homes, Royal Dominion Homes, Willie Goode’s Colonial Homecrafters LTD, Metropolitan Real Estate and Honey Meadows Subdivision are joining to sponsor a Swimathon next month to raise money to send children to the Muscular Dystrophy Association camp, which is held every year in Wakefield. The Swimathon will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Honey Meadows Pool and Clubhouse, which is located behind Chickahominy Middle School.

In addition to the Swimathon, other free activities will be provided, as well as food and drinks. Participants do not have to swim. There will be prizes for the three top swim associations for their fundraising. To register to participate in the Aug. 11 event, forms are available at the model homes in Honey Meadows, which is located off Atlee Station Road behind Chickahominy Middle or at ERA Woody Hogg and Associates at 9137 Chamberlayne Road in Mechanicsville. For more information, call 804-559-4644. The MDA camp is a week-long event for children that have Muscular

Dystrophy. It is a chance for the children to get together and meet other children and have fun for a week. There are lots of activities they are able to enjoy that week that are not available to them otherwise. Participants said one of the most favorite things is their time at the pool. For most children, time at the pool is fun but many can enjoy it all summer long where many kids with Muscular Dystrophy only have that week. With that in mind, the sponsors decided to sponsor a Swimathon to help raise money to send kids to camp for the week.

Half of the men who die suddenly from these will have had no previous symptoms. Baggesen detailed several myths related to cardiovascular disease. For example, many people believe that high cholesterol causes heart attacks and “normal” blood sugar is normal, but he said that is not the case. He also said there is no such thing as “mild” cardiovascular disease, and a passing grade on a stress test does not mean

There are a number of tests to assess your vascular health, including a technology that can assess vascular health beyond the stress tests and blood lipid panels that uses ultrasound.

Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Hanover Chapter 1399, United Daughters of the Confederacy, celebrated the 100th anniversary of the chartering of the chapter on Sunday, May 20, at the UDC Memorial Building in Richmond. The program began with the Pledge of Allegiance and was followed by the National Anthem. Salutes to the flags of Virginia and the Confederacy led into “Carry Me Back to Ol’ Virginny” and “Dixie’s Land.” The UDC Opening Ritual and prayer were led by Cynthia Seal, chapter presi-

dent. Thomas Grayson Redford was honored at the bestowal of Awards of Military Service. Lt. Cmdr. Redford, U.S. Navy, received the Cross of Military Service for the Vietnam Conflict and the Armed Forces Expeditionary Service Medal for the Korean War. The ceremony was performed by Seal and Virginia Vellines, Johnson, chair of Military Service Awards. Johnson read the history of the chapter, which was originally compiled by Mrs. Walter W. Sydnor for the 50th anniversary and updated by her mother, Ruth Vellines, on the 60th anniversary.

Betty Giragosia updated the history for the chapter’s 90th anniversary and, for the 100th, Johnson updated the history. During the research, it was learned that for 100 years Hanover Chapter has met on the third Thursday of each month in Hanover County. In 1912, applicants to the UDC were required to write an essay describing the service of their ancestor to the Confederacy, as well as being recommended for membership by a Confederate veteran. The applicants were very detailed in describing the service of grandfathers, see UDC, pg. 21 `

fortable home-like conditions to having very few, if any, comforts while sleeping in a large room with dozens of other soldiers. “Hearing about their living conditions, how they wouldn’t have any privacy for months on end and had to use the bathroom outside made me appreciate my living quarters,” HYSC member Cody Roane said. After hearing the two men speak, HYSC members were able to ask a few personal questions. Council members asked the soldiers what is was like to be away from their families for so long and if they ever considered leaving the Army. Stockhausen said the hardest part was being away from his two sons and missing their athletic competitions. He looks forward to retiring in two years so he can spend more time with his family. Hoggatt said he has never considered leaving the military. He joined when he was 17 years old and has served for 14 years. He is eager to return to active duty but is unsure what his future role will be. Both men sustained injuries

Members of the Hanover Youth Service Council recently received a first-hand lesson on U.S. Army life from two soldiers from Hanover County. Sgt. Maj. Michael Stockhausen of Mechanicsville and Sgt. Johnathan Hoggatt of Ashland addressed the group.

during their service. Hoggatt had surgery this past May and needs medical clearance to continue serving in the same capacity. He is a pre-medical student at Virginia Commonwealth University. Stockhausen and Hoggatt encouraged the Council to remember the troops serving overseas. “Sending anything overseas to soldiers means a lot, because soldiers don’t always feel that people back home think about them,” Council member Meg Hunt said. Hunt’s father also is a veteran. The Council has written thank

you letters to soldiers and veterans and collected three boxes of supplies to send to troops. In June, the HYSC volunteered at the 32nd National Veterans Wheelchair Games in Richmond. The competition gives disabled veterans the opportunity to participate in events like swimming, quad rugby, table tennis and basketball. Member Kensley Watkins said, “Hearing about all of the experiences was amazing, and I’m so appreciative of what they’ve done for this country.”

The HYSC plans to continue its work with veterans. Members Dylan Sklar and Jack Stockhausen, son of Sgt. Maj. Michael Stockhausen, proposed that the Council participate in the Veteran’s History Project. Members will interview local veterans and send the recordings to the Library of Congress to be archived and used by researchers, students, educators and the general public.

“I cracked a tooth and wanted to see the dentist quickly due to the pain. I called, and 22 minutes later was in the office. Unfortunately, the tooth was so damaged that it had to be extracted. The pain relief was immediate. After the work was done I took two Aleve that evening and two the following day. Pain gone. I don’t know how it was done so efficiently and effectively, but I could not be more pleased. If going to the dentist can be a pleasant experience, this is the place to go.

Post 175 one win away from district title

By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local In each of its first two American Legion District 11 tournament games, Post 175 gave up six runs in a single inning, yet the Mechanicsville team held on for wins. It was a different story in the winner’s bracket finale on Sunday at Powhatan High School. Taking on West End Post 361, top-seeded Mechanicsville found itself defending basesloaded situations in three separate innings – the second, seventh, and eighth – yet in all but one of those innings, Post 175 gave up no runs. The combination of gutcheck pitching and clutch defense required to keep second seed West End at bay, gave Mechanicsville a 10-2 victory and clinched Post 175 an appearance in the District 11 championship game Thursday at Powhatan at 7 p.m.

36

Should Post 175, undefeated with a 21-0 record, lose its first game then, it will get another chance to win its first District 11 title Friday at Powhatan in the double-elimination tournament. “It puts us in the driver’s seat,” said Post 175 coach Eddie Gates. “Now we have to sit back and wait, get some rest. Get the pitchers some rest. Be ready for whoever comes at us.” Post 175 starter Chris Childress is one of those who could use some rest. He got in a bases-loaded jam in the second inning, giving up back-to-back singles and walking a third batter with one out. “My fast ball just wasn’t in the strike zone. They were sitting on my curve ball – they were ripping it,” Childress said. “I had to make some adjustments. A couple of good plays in the field helped me out.” Actually, a spectacular play

helped him out. Center fielder Bryan Johansen turned a double play, charging Will Hodges fly ball and firing a rocket to home plate where catcher Mitch Keeler tagged Will Black to end the sacrifice threat as well as Post 361’s turn at bat. “It was huge,” Childress said of Johansen’s play. “I try not to let my emotions show too much, but inside I was going crazy. It was a big play. He’s a great outfielder.”

Childress pitched four solid innings after that, but his pitch count – a bit more than 100 – caught up with him in the seventh inning, giving up two runs and leaving two runners on base with one out when Allan Ellis relieved him. Ellis walked his first batter to load the bases, but struck out the next and got the third to pop up to end the inning. “There’s no one else I really want behind me,” Childress said of Ellis. “I’ve got all the con-

fidence in the world in a kid like that. He threw strikes and helped us get the win.” But not without his own struggles in the eighth inning. Ellis walked the first two Post 361 batters and gave up a single to the third before getting himself out of the inning with two strikeouts and a fly to center field. After getting a chance to bat in the bottom of the eighth, Ellis came back and retired all three West End batters in the final inning.

“That’s a battle there. He was throwing his pitches a little wild and then I think he lost a little bit of his … focus,” Gates said. “He hadn’t batted a whole bunch, and I think getting him to bat a little bit took his mind off his pitching. He battled back.” Post 361 stranded 15 batters throughout the game. Coach Doug Toombs discussed the marooned runners with his players after the game. see LEGION, pg. 39 `


RCC ready for another professional golf showcase

Eagle Classic looking to build on last year’s record attendance By Jim Ridolphi For The Mechanicsville Local Once again Richmond Country Club is gearing up for women’s professional golf to return to Goochland county in the Eagle Classic, August 13-19. “We’re excited about this year,” said RCC golf pro and tournament director Matthew Schulze. “We’re trying to make this year the best tournament we’ve had. It’s gotten bigger and better each year and we want to continue that trend.” Last year’s attendance reached record levels for Friday and Saturday play, and only rain prevented even bigger crowds for the final round on Sunday as Mo Martin claimed the trophy. With only five events left on the Symetra Tour when golfers reach RCC, the Eagle Classic is perfectly timed for players who need every stroke to finish in the top ten and qualify for LPGA status. “Traditionally, we get a strong field here,” Schulze said. “The girls who are in the

top 20 players can’t afford to take a week off at this point in the season.” A top finish at Richmond can affect the numbers drastically. Last year, Martin’s win raised her from 12th to fourth place. That means even more this year with the top ten finishers slated to attain LPGA status. “During the last few weeks of the season the numbers can really jump around quite a bit, so every tournament is important,” Schulze said. An Eagle Classic tournament win also means an automatic entry to this year’s LPGA event at Kingsmill in September. Fortunately, Richmond Country Club’s 6,500 yard, Par 71 course escaped major damage during storms that pelted the area several weeks ago. “We battened down the hatches and we’re ready on all fronts,” Schulze said. Groundskeeper Greg McCue said although there was some damage in spots, the course will be ready for the Eagle Classic. “We were lucky with the storms and power outages. We didn’t get the brunt of it.” Generators provided irri-

gation during the power outage and several trees were downed. “We lost two key trees on No. 11 and 18 holes,” McCue said. “Both protected the greens from shots if you stray a little off the fairway on your tee shot.” Like other golf courses throughout the Richmond area, the high heat and lack of rain have also challenged grounds crews, including McCue’s. “Heat and water stress has taken its toll with a few of the greens, and there are some thinned areas that should recover by tournament week,” McCue said. “We need a couple more breaks from the heat and excess rain to really be great, but we know we will be giving them a good and challengeable venue.” For Schulze, it’s more about the way it rains than how much. “Getting it all at one time like we’ve had with the downpours is not what we need.” The tournament enjoys great local support and sponsorship. Likewise, the accompanying social events are a key element to an exciting week of action.

Last year, Midlothian teen Lyberty Anderson, above right, played a big part in allowing the Eagle Classic to draw a record attendance. This year, Anderson along with big changes should add to the excitement and draw at Richmond Country Club, August 13-19.

“The real challenge is organizing and scheduling all the social activities that go along with the tournament,” Schulze said. “We want to make sure we get the little things right, and don’t miss anything in the planning stage. There are so many more social events than there used to be.” For example, Thursday evening will feature a presentation by the U.S. Army Pop Band from Fort Lee that is open to the public. The concert begins at 6 p.m. near the driving range. A Meet the Pros party is scheduled for Wednesday, August 15 at 7 p.m. that will benefit Feedmore. There will also be additional skyboxes on the eighteenth green that will give the tournament that PGA feeling for spectators. Schulze said spectators can expect to see a high caliber of play with a familiar feeling for fans.

“We want people to come out here and see just how good these players are,” Schulze said. “We also want them to see how accessible the players are. You can talk to the girls when they are on the driving range. Once people come out and see the product, it sells itself.” One local crowd favorite is Lyberty Anderson, a Midlothian youth who has made a name for herself in local golf circles by winning the City’s Amateur championship for the past three years. Last year, Anderson entered her first Eagle Classic and it’s a relationship that Schulze said has greatly benefited the tournament. “She’s great. She’s done a lot to help us promote the tournament,” he said. “She gets golf and she’s a great kid a real asset to the event.” The club and course are ready and waiting for the 144 golfers who will converge on RCC next month. “It’s a great

event and a lot of fun,” Schulze said. “I’m a golfer at heart, so this event is a blast for me.” With a little help from Mother Nature, McCue feels the course too will be in tiptop shape for the tournament. “With the number of hours that my assistant (Jeremy Clark) and I are logging now, things are really coming together,” McCue said. “Our Tournament Director, Matthew Schulze, and his team of volunteers also are working hard to give the girls a tournament to remember.” Speaking of volunteers, the tournament can use all the help it can get. “We think the more, the better when it comes to volunteers,” Schulze said. Duties include driving carts, spotting golf balls, crowd control and other assorted duties.

Mechanicsville rolls to state championship By David Halstead For The Mechanicsville Local Northumberland– The Mechanicsville Little League 11-12 softball team can now deservedly call themselves the best in Virginia. The Mechanicsville AllStars capped off a phenomenal tournament run by routing Bridgewater 11-0 in the State Championship game held in Northumberland last Thursday. The team went undefeated in the week-long tournament by winning five straight games and outscoring their opponents 52-3. In seven post-season games this season, Mechanicsville has only given up a total of four runs. In the state championship contest, Bridgewater managed just one hit off of Mechanicsville pitcher Jesse Gentry, who allowed no earned runs, walked none and struck out five during her four innings of work. “Jesse is a great kid and I love her to death,” Mechanicsville manager Johnny Sheffield said. “She stays calm and nothing bothers her, which is really nice. I couldn’t ask for more from her.”

In four innings of work, Gentry allowed no earned runs, walked none and struck out five. Top right: Sydney Guess (8) scores on a single by Kelly Warren in the first inning to give Mechanicsville a 2-0 lead. Below right: Mechanicsville celebrates in a nontraditional fashion by silly-stringing their coaches following the win.

The game had barely begun before Mechanicsville opened up a 5-0 lead and seemed to be cruising along. Mechanicsville got things going early in the first inning when Sydney Guess singled to centerfield to score Molly Sheffield.

Atlee/Mechanicsville advance Staff reports On Monday afternoon, the Atlee 11-12 Little League Majors baseball team defeated Chantilly 12-1 to advance to the state tournament quarterfinals in Portsmouth. Atlee was scheduled to play again on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. (after press deadlines). With Monday’s win, Atlee was 3-0 in pool play. The Mechanicsville 9-10 Little League baseball team went 2-1 in state tournament pool play at Crittenden Park in Asburn to advance to the single elimination tournament start-

ing Monday. Mechanicsville opened pool play on Friday with an 11-1 win over Bristol. On Saturday, Mechanicsville was on the losing end of a 13-3 contest with Loudon South but they bounced back for a 12-0 win over King William on Sunday. On Monday afternoon (after press deadlines), Mechanicsville took on Great Falls out of District 4. Mechanicsville would need two wins to reach the state championship game, to be played on Wednesday, July 25 at 5:45 p.m.

The Mechanicsville Local July 25, 2012

scored on a wild pitch to make it 4-0. Warren wrapped up the scoring for Mechanicsville in the first when she scored on a ground out by Elizabeth Hudson. Mechanicsville entered the tournament as heavy favorites to win the championship. They therefore felt they had all the pressure on them to come up with results. “Where we come from, everybody had put the pressure on us. We were supposed to do this,” Sheffield said. “You are never supposed to do anything; you still have to go play the game.” And play the game, they did. Mechanicsville strung together hits and added four runs in the second inning and two in the fourth to take an 110 lead going into the bottom of the fourth. Gentry, then finished off her gem by mowing down the next three batters with a strikeout, ground-out to second, and pop-out to centerfield to seal the deal and give Mechanicsville the championship. “We played as a team. We

really have,” Sheffield said. “Some days our pitching is dominating and other days like today, the ball is put in play a lot. Our defense really steps up when they need to and a lot of people don’t see that in certain games.” The All-Stars now have little time to rest. Mechanicsville is headed to Warner Robins, Georgia for the Little League Southeastern Regionals, which begin on Thursday, July 26.

With only a week to prepare, Sheffield and company were hurrying to get trip preparations finalized. “We are scrambling now. We have to figure out hotel room situations and how we are getting there,” Sheffield said. “It’s a big commitment from the parents and the coaches as well. So, we will have to pull together as a family and we have another two weeks together and hopefully the outcome is the same.”

Mechanicsville begins pool play against Tennessee on July 26 at 4 p.m. They will then play South Carolina on July 27 and West Virginia on July 28. The top two teams from each pool of four teams will play in the semi-finals on July 29 with the championship game held on July 30. The winner of the Southeastern Regionals will advance to the Little League World Series in Portland, Oregon.

LEGION

Mechanicsville advanced to Sunday’s game by defeating #3 seed Lakeside Post 125 12-7 on Friday. On Saturday, Post 175 hosted Powhatan Post 201, who came into the contest off one day’s rest, and came away with an 18-8 7-inning win. Mechanicsville was led by short stop Andrew Knizner who recorded a grand slam and a 3-RBI double in his first two atbats. Knizner finished the night with 8-RBI.

“I told them I thought we did strand a lot,” Toombs said. “I’m not going to take anything away from their pitching staff. They got out of a couple of huge jams, especially that one in the seventh when we scored two.” Several Post 175 players had two hits: Johansen, Mitch Keeler, Bryant Lowry and Michael Thomas. Johansen and Lowry each hit a double. Lowry and Thomas each had two RBI, with Keeler knocking in another run. Johansen and West each scored twice. Post 361 was led by John Lloyd with two hits, including a triple, and an RBI. Black and Brandon Stein also had two hits a piece, with one of Stein’s being a double.
